I assume that you were at the Majestic Theater. I was there also. Since this is the first and only mention of early showing I figure it happened just at this venue. I walked in during Birdsong at 7:10 PM.

I also got my money refunded afterwards. I will say though I enjoyed what I did catch. Theater management handled the situation very poorly. The marquee, ticket and theater all stated 7:00 PM as show time. Management changed their tune a few times when the majority of heads confronted them.

Was there any pre show content shown anywhere. There was mention of some on Deadnet. Was the event put on by GD Production or Rhino?

Anyway I had a good time.

this does not apply to the Dead show you guys are talking about but I had just as bad an experience w/ Van Morrison.A few weeks prior to the beat show I saw him at a club deep in Marin called Rancho Nacasio and Huey Lewis and the News opened before they had hit big then Van the Man took control and the show was fantastic.About a month or so later there is a date for the Man to play THE GREAT AMERICAN MUSIC HALL,figuring it's a great place to see a show and then Van comes on stage stumpling and very obviouly drunk to where he almost fell off the stage and some people were oblivious to this horendous excuse of a show. My table went right to the mngr.and demanded our money back and we should of gotten paid to sit through that dreck. We did in fact get our money back after insinuating that an announcement would be made that Van was drunk and so on. So to placate us we got our money back and this was the first and only time we ever demanded cash back for piss poor performance....

1-"Cassidy"-Damia Timoner

2-"Brown Eyed Women"-The Giving Tree Band

3-"I Will Take You Home"-Aaron Gibson

very good covers...give them a listen
